    First mtb

    I have been riding a road bike for a little over a year (3000 miles) and have really enjoyed it. The road bike has it's limit. I decided I needed a "do all" fun bike. I found this bike on CL, did some research, fell in love and had to have it. Pretty sure it is a 1988 Rockhopper Com. The first ride (as bought) was through my neighborhood on hilly streets. The biopace crank has a definite different feel, especially at a high cadence. After about 8 miles a crank bolt came loose and locked the pedal. Took it to my LBM to straighten my crank, got it tuned, and new tires. Put on a pair of kenda kross tires for the "do all". Can hardly wait to take her out again.

    Rockhopper..what year????

    I just received a Specialized Rockhopper..looks like an older bike..been searching and it seams to be a 95. The bike has a Taiwan label on the front lower stem...was this a low end model. The bike is outfitted with a Direct Drive light double butted frame stickers, a double butted cromo front fork sticker also. Any info would be great..I am thinking about fixing this up...

    Cool bike! Looks like it would like to have a little fresh grease though. Even my 1985 Rockhopper has a Made In Taiwan sticker on it. Funny, my '85 has almost exactly the same component group on it as my wifes '84 Stumpjumper. Her Stumpjumper says made in Japan though. Traditionally it was the Stumpjumper, then the Rockhopper, then the Hardrock. So the Rockhopper would have been mid level, but there may have been different component levels for each.

    So I can place it from the 80's era I guess...I will take apart and inspect all of the bearings and grease them up...Oh...one more thing..I got it from a lady..she told me it was a women's bike..which I did not agree with her...was I right...??

    Ya, I don't think its a woman's specific bike. I think your original guess of mid 90's (roughly) is more accurate time wise. Actually looking again, if it only has a six speed freewheel/cassette maybe it is more like early 90's. Maybe somebody else knows better though.

    My 1990 Rockhopper Comp which I purchased new for $625. Originally rigid, I added the Judy XC with air cartridges in 94. I must've put about 10,000 miles on that bike using it first as my main ride for 8 years, then as a NYC commuter with fat slicks for another 3 years. It became my first Singlespeed in 2010 after sitting in the basement for about 9 years and then I sold it to fund a 29er SS. Still miss that bike! Big Ass 22" frame.

    My Old '85 Rockhopper

    My old bike is back on the road again. I went through the fork, replaced spindle in bottom bracket, disassembled and cleaned the brakes, shifters, and then cleaned up the derailleurs. I had hubs laced up with new rims from Alex Rims and I installed a NOS Shimano freewheel.
    Bike rides very smoothly and is very quiet w/o any squeaks or rattles.

    I picked up a new commuter project yesterday and immediately started it's transformation. The tires were shot, as were the rim brakes. Gearing was slipping a little too. But the frame was in nice shape and the price was right. I need to get a quill stem adapter and stem, then a new set of brakes. Then I'll be swapping the crank and finishing my single speed build.

    Here's how she sits at the moment:

    Saw this this in the back of the shop the other day and instantly knew it was your from the seat. I cant wait to see it all built up. I have to say, I am jealous of the purple. The silver one you sold me is just not as cool. It looked like the 2.4 on the back just barley cleared the chainstays. The 2.2's on mine are great but I would like a bit more cushion. Not sure about the mud clearance though Official Specialized Picture Thread-img_2138.jpgOfficial Specialized Picture Thread-img_2480.jpg

    Your SS build was actually inspiration for this one! haha - I'll send pics when this one is done. I had to order some v-brakes, but it should be ready to roll mid-week. And yeah, the 2.4's were tight for sure. I actually wasn't sure they'd even fit in the back, and mud may pose a problem. We'll cross that bridge when we get there though.

    Nice thread
    I raced a Stumpjumper FS in '93, and then a Stumpjumper in '94, both great bikes to ride. I'm keen to track one of each down for restoration so I scan the classifieds on a regular basis. Who knows, perhaps I'll be able to post some pics up in due course

    Early Stumpjumper??

    Official Specialized Picture Thread-stumpjumper-1-.jpg Trying to figure out what vintage this is. I bought it at a police auction in the mid eighties, the serial number was ground off. I did some part swapping like the bars, cranks, shifters and derailers but kept some of the pieces. I pulled it out of the shed the other day and put on a new derailler and it rides almost like new (the brakes squeak . The old TA crank has the weirdest set up for a triple chain ring that I never noticed before as I liked the look of the Sugino AT back then. Anyone have any ideas on what year it is or something that could point me in the right direction? I left a message at Specialized but am not holding my breath. Thanks for looking.

    My Stumpjumper, just got it rolling recently. Love it so much more then I expected. Don't know much about it, was thinking 1984, but not sure. Curious about how much of it is original, like the Deore XT shifters and Deore DX rear der.

    Just got this Stumpjumper rolling.
    This thing is so fun!
    and cant believe how well these old thumb shifters/group works, was going to upgrade to newer 9 speed with barends/paul thumbies, but i think i'm just going to leave it as is.
    Don't know much about it, was guessing that its a '84, but not really sure. Wondering how much of it is original, like bars, Deore XT shifter, XT front der, and Deore DX rear.

    Just picked this up off Craigslist. Swapped the mismatched wheelset for some Arayas that already had 26x1.5 tires on em. Not sure what direction to take the bike after I get it all cleaned up.

    '86 Rockhopper

    Below is my '86 Rockhopper. Picked it up about 6 months back on CL for $100. It was pretty clean and mostly original. Looked to be hardly ridden; original tires had basically no visible wear and paint is almost pristine.

    A few things needed replacing right from the get go... non-original cheapy saddle got tossed, foam handlebar grips were rotting, brake pads were brittle and the beads on the tires were starting to disintegrate.

    Drivetrain was in good shape and mostly original Shimano Deer Head vintage with the exception of one thumbshifter which appears to be a period era Suntour replacement for the original Shimano thumby. The 3x6 gearing is more than enough for any road climbing I encounter with it. Cantis work surprisingly well once I swapped out the pads to new Koolstops and gave them a little adjustment.

    Turned out I didn't much care for the original bars and stem after a couple weeks of riding. I lucked into a used Rivendell Bullmoose Bosco bar which I'm really enjoying on this bike instead. As this bike is doing duty (mostly) as my commuter and errand runner, I threw some SKS fenders on it and moved racks/basket over from another bike. I really enjoy how this bike rides; it might be my current favorite just for overall comfort and fun factor.

    Yeah, after blowing it up, it does look like a 93 M2 FS. Similar graphics to the 90 Stumpjumper
